My esthetician told me about this today because she knows how much I like shimmer! This colour can be used alone or on top of a darker colour. It is silvery with a pinky blue sparkle. I was amazed that when it dried, the glitter was smooth on the nail. It didn't lift and snag on things. It goes on a little weird over dark colours, but over a nice wintery white it might be prettier.
I was in search of a blue perfect for our cold winters. I came across this colour and couldn't buy it fast enough. It is a VERY shimmery icy pale blue. I was originally planning on using it on just my toes, but I think I will give it a try on my fingers too. So gorgeous!
I cna't comment on the staying power of this product yet, but I am sure I won't be disappointed. I can comment on how quickly it does set polish. I applied nail envy (2 coats) and one of the laquer. It dried in 5 mins just like the package said. I have yet to be disappointed with OPI products!
Wow! I thought this colour was pretty in the bottle, but it is even more beautiful on. The little flecks of gold really shimmer and soften this otherwise bright pink. I have only started using OPI laquers recently and I am very happy with the staying power. I can't wait to purchase more!
I was reading maliastyle's review and relaized I still haven't put one in. And yes... this woman was in her late 40's and not a single wrinkle! This product works well as an eye make-up remover too and I am trying it today as a hot oil treatment. I will let you know how it works.
I have this in Black, Brown, Chestnut, Khaki and a simmery gray. These pencils are very soft and go on very smoothly. There are gentle on the eye and come in a wonderful array of colours. I must say they don't last all day, but long enough for a day of work so I am happy with that.
Eye Shadow -Annabelle - Staying Power Eyeshadow Pencil

I bought this in Angelic and Blossom. When they say "staying power", they mean it! There are only a few colours, but I am definitely going back for more. There is a good amount of shimmer (not glittter) and they go on much smoother than Maybelline's Eye shadow pencils. I feel for the American girls that can't get these... they are a definite must have!
I used this for the first time last night. I have to say I am completely impressed! The packaging reccommends using the product up to 3 times a week, I don't think I will be doing that... but I am amazed at the results. Right away my skin looked brighter and seemed to glow. I am a big believer in AHA products and I stand by Neostrata whole heartedly. I have read many books written by dermatologists and they all seem to rec an AHA product to boost collagen and prevent wrinkles. So far, my skin is proof of what they say. If you are looking for a Microdermabrasion system, give this one a try!
Great neutral, shimmery pink. Ultra feminine!
This is one of the first OPI colours I bought. It is a sheer, irredescent colour that is so different and pretty. I haven't seen a colour like this that keeps it's shine after multiple washings and applications of hand lotion. It will take forever to use up this colour, but I will definitley buy it again when it runs out.
The nail lacquers are the nicest polishes I have ever used. With all the diaper changes, dishes and hand washing I do, I can get a good 5 days out of this polish. That impresses me! The price is a little steep, ($12 CDN), but when you know what colours you want you get better longevity out of this product, and then better value.
I recieved this as a gift with purchase. Very smart of Yves, because now I will be ordering a second bottle. I haven't used it onmy lips, but it is tremendous for eyes. I have been working very hard to improve the condition of my skin and FINALLY the "chicken skin" under my eyes is going away. This product has maintained that work! It is silky smooth, and sinks into the skin quickly without leaving a greasy film around my eyes. I use it morning and night and haven't had any problems using it under eye make-up. A little goes a long way, which makes the value of the product even better.
Cleansers -Yves Rocher - Serum Vegatal - Fatigue Eraser Gel Cleanser

I recieved a sample of this and have sinced ordered the larger size. IMO Yves skin care is high quality and reasonably priced. I use their products in the morning and NeoStrata at night and I have been very happy with the results! This gel cleasner is great for us combo girls. It rinses away easily, keeps my skin clear and has a nice light fragrance.
This product is wonderful to set the Yves Illuminating Cream. I like the shimmer. It offers a healthy looking glow, not a glittery mess. You can't see traces of powder that I have so easily found with other products and best of all it makes my skin smooth and my complexion even. Again, another product from Yves that I am happy with.
Can I buy this in BULK???? I was looking for a wonderful, light product that would help my skin glow. This product is it! It goes on easily and blends into an ultra smooth finish. I set with Luxurious Loose Powder in Golden Shimmer and I am good for the day. It hasn't clogged my pores and doesn't feel heavy. I have been very happy with this product and recommend to anyone looking for an even complexion, without the heavy masque other foundations make.
